In life we deal with many different stressors on a daily basis. Whether it’s not getting a promotion that you feel that you deserve. Not having enough money in the bank. Maybe it’s relationship or family issues. Many of us can relate to all of these different scenarios. There’s one thing that they all have in common. You don’t have complete control over these situations.
We spend so much time stressed and worried about things that in many cases someone else has to play a part in accomplishing certain things. For instance, let’s use the example of getting a promotion at work. You may have all of the credential, experience and knowledge that it takes to get that position or promotion. But if the individual who is over you doesn’t think that you are good enough or just flat out doesn’t want you to have it, you’ll just be out of luck.
What is one a few things that you actually have control over. Your health and your body. Many people may feel that this isn’t true. For instance, in the black community diabetes and high blood pressure is the norm. Even though this may be the case, you still have the ability to take preventive measures. For instance, having regular doctor’s visits. Instead of waiting until you feel the side effects of diabetes or high blood pressure, stay on top of it. Get regular blood work done. Get your body fat checked. Find out where your weight should be and get it to that point.
Outside of height and facial features, if you aren’t satisfied with the way you look you have the ability to fix those so called “flaws”. At the end of the day, this falls on you. If you aren’t successful or satisfied with what you see, it’s your own fault. It’s your decision.
Take a look at yourself. Are you satisfied with what you see? If not, what would you like to see when you look in the mirror? After you find the answers to those questions. Then find out the steps that need to be taken.
Put all of your focus into what you can control. Then control it. Not only control it, but dominate it!
